Hamish grew up in Crieff, Perthshire, and after graduating from Durham University was a ministry trainee at Christchurch Durham. After teaching History for a couple of years he spent the last five years working as Staff Worker in Durham and Assistant Team Leader for UCCF in the North East.
He is now serving as the Associate Pastor-in-Training at St. Andrews Free Church, in St. Andrews, Fife. For four days a week he will be serving the church family through personal work, leading Bible studies, co-ordinating the children’s work, training leaders and preaching. For two days a week he will be studying at Edinburgh Theological Seminary in order to be better equipped for long-term church leadership, particularly through getting a grasp of the Biblical languages.
He’s married to Marije, and they’ve got three little kids. Along with playing with them, Hamish enjoys reading, music, and lots of sports, including the annual vocation of supporting Scotland Rugby.
